D-A LUBRICANT INVESTS IN NEW PRODUCTION LINE
D-A Lubricant Co. is investing $4.6 million to increase production at its Lebanon, Indiana, headquarters with the installation of another production line in the
250,000-square-foot facility. D-A Lubricant received a three-year personal property tax abatement from the Lebanon City Council on the new equipment, saving
it close to $70,000. "D-A Lubricant is a major sponsor of many racing-related
events, and we are proud to have a local company represent Boone County on a
national and international stage," Boone County Economic Development Corp.
Executive Director Molly Whitehead said in a prepared statement.
KLÜBER BETTING HYDRO LUBRICANTS ARE THE FUTURE
The tribology experts at Klüber have succeeded in developing homogeneous
lubricants with functional water contents: The Hydro Lubricants. Water offers
numerous important functional advantages: it is sustainable, globally available,
nontoxic and nonflammable," said Dr. Stefan Seemeyer, head of research and
product development at Klüber Lubrication. Utilizing additives in the lubricant
or technical solutions at the component concerned, Klüber has managed to
exploit water's strengths, such as its cooling and electrical conductivity effects.
The work also opens the door to more diversity of raw materials which were
previously not used because they were not soluble in oil.
SHELL PARTNERS WITH UBER IN INDIA
Shell, along with Pitstop (a doorstep car service company), is setting up kiosks
at Uber's Partner Service Centers across India to help Uber drivers maintain their
vehicles. The Partner Service Centers are where drivers go to get help with documentation, payments, account questions and now vehicle maintenance. A significant
portion of Uber drivers travel close to 155 miles (250 kilometers) a day, meaning
they need an oil change every other month. Shortly after the first launch in Bangalore, the service was reported to have had around 300 visits by driver partners.
SELF-MONITORING TECHNOLOGY TESTED IN WIND TURBINES
Logilube's SmartGear technology is being applied and tested on the drivetrains in
three General Electric 1.5-megawatt turbines used at a Rocky Mountain Power
wind farm in southeast Wyoming. SmartGear provides real-time lube oil condition monitoring, predictive analysis of a lubricant's remaining useful life and automated collection of in-service lube oil and lubricant filter status. The hope is that
the data analytics provided can help operators avoid curtailment and unnecessary
maintenance and enhance the reliability of wind-energy equipment.
